While working with the Community Action Program in Little Falls, I saw what a difference the right job at the right time could make. We helped prepare teens and young adults for good-paying jobs that gave them safe opportunities to change the lives of their whole families.
New Careers in Manufacturing
We can invest in our rural communities with the same focus. We can invest in green energy infrastructure in Northern and Central Minnesota and offer paid training and apprenticeships for the installers and maintenance technicians to create long-term, good-paying jobs right here. Programs like this--and dozens of others--still exist in the Metro area, the people of Central Minnesota deserve the same opportunities.
Inflation Reduction Act
With the new legislation, The Inflation Reduction Act, just recently passed on the federal level, I believe the support for education and job renewal will be an integral part of our rural infrastructure.
People of rural Minnesota are hard-working, reliable workers and companies looking for solid foundation will benefit from establishing themselves in our communities. Good paying jobs, education, and new businesses create a better future for rural communities across the board!
